Families have enjoyed another month of summer fun with a packed programme of August events from the This is South Tyneside Festival.
The festival – which began in June with live music at Sandhaven Amphitheatre – extends right through to September.
Organisers have lined up everything from outdoor live music performances and theatre shows to school holiday activities for children – all completely free of charge.
The borough’s parks have been the setting for a series of community events this month with some of the region’s finest brass bands, local artists, children’s entertainers, and family-friendly plays.
This month people spent Saturdays singing along with local bands playing some all-time favorites in the Victorian bandstand at South Marine Park between 2pm and 4pm.
City Road Survivors took to the stage on Saturday 12 August, followed by Barely Human on 19 August.
Councillor Audrey Huntley, Deputy Leader of South Tyneside Council with responsibility for Culture, Leisure, and the Visitor Economy, said the programme “offers something for everyone.”
